Student Loan - Sephiroth - Etc

Personal: Ranting on, it looks like I might have to get a student loan to pay for all my crazy college stuff.

Sephiroth: I've noticed the one place I typically like to buy a Sephiroth Sword, from TrueSwords, no longer offers it. It does not even say 'out of stock' or anything anymore. They were likely sued by Square Enix for selling replica Sephiroth merchandise. Their swords were just the right length... they weren't actual length, but they were wieldable by human hands (not easily, however). Sephiroth's Masamune blade does not coincide well with simple, constant hack-and-slash tactics, but require swift, decisive swings.

Masamune was recognized as one of Japan's greatest swordsmiths, which is where his blade gets it's name. You might also recognize the name Murasame as one of the blades you can win on the Gold Saucer roller coaster. The Murasame is more of a cursed blade that cuts down lives without discretion, while the Masamune is more honorable.

Sephiroth Cosplay Sword

Sephiroth's sword can also be seen in a variety of Sephiroth Cosplay, which you can't miss. Check out some awesome cosplay pictures of the leader of Jenova's Witnesses, and learn more about how Sephiroth will come to rule the planet.

Sephiroth Masamune

The Masamune is a long, curved blade wielded by the legendary Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII, Kingdom Hearts 1, Kingdom Hearts 2). Sephiroth uses this tremendous sword to cut things and kill several people throughout the course of events in Final Fantasy VII. The Sephiroth Masamune can be wielded only by Sephiroth, due to it's shear size and weight. It is rather unbalanced, considering it is 40% longer than the average human height. The sword is a great sight to behold, and you best be sure you are on the winning side when it is brought out in combat.

Sephiroth uses this sword, along with the power given to him thanks to Jenova cells infused with Mako energy, to help win battles in Wutai, for example. He is virtually unstoppable in combat, and few people, except Cloud, are insane enough to battle him.
